Cooking up a storm

Murray River
Another enjoyable weekend has passed in the Riverland area of South Australia in the lovely township of Renmark.  Renmark is in the heart of winegrowing country, and it is also well known for the growing of fruit and nuts mainly almonds. 
We have been feasting on yabbies and are forever looking for new ways to dish them up so far we all have had chowder, in wine sauce, tempura battered, fritters and also as is . 
Cooking the yabbies
Tomorrow I may try a Mornay for everyone as my Yabby chowder was a big hit last night and I might add a pumpkin pie for dessert.  Pumpkins are also grown here in abundance.
A group of us have been going out and catching yabbies and we caught our fair share in a couple of days.  What you see in this picture is a lot of yabbies but we have returned equally as much back into the river.

It is still rather cold but not as cold as it has been.  Happy Birthday Bill!!!I hope you had a great birthday.
Talk again soon
